***The No. 1 Sunday Times bestseller and the overall bestselling novel of 2017***

PEOPLE ARE CAPABLE OF ALMOST ANYTHING.

‘Meticulously crafted and razor-sharp. THE COUPLE NEXT DOOR lingers long after you turn the final page’ HARLAN COBEN

Fast-paced and addictive, THE COUPLE NEXT DOOR announces a major new talent in thriller writing.

You never know what's happening on the other side of the wall.

Your neighbour told you that she didn't want your six-month-old daughter at the dinner party. Nothing personal, she just couldn't stand her crying.

Your husband said it would be fine. After all, you only live next door. You'll have the baby monitor and you'll take it in turns to go back every half hour.

Your daughter was sleeping when you checked on her last. But now, as you race up the stairs in your deathly quiet house, your worst fears are realized. She's gone.

You've never had to call the police before. But now they're in your home, and who knows what they'll find there.

What would you be capable of, when pushed past your limit?

'How well do we ever know those around us? THE COUPLE NEXT DOOR will keep you glued to the pages in search of the answer. Even then, you'll never guess the truth...until it's too late' LISA GARDNER

ALSO OUT NOW the new Sunday Times bestsellers from Shari Lapena: A STRANGER IN THE HOUSE and AN UNWANTED GUEST

(original quote, page 23) Content: Anne and her husband Marco are invited to dinner by their neighbors next door. When the babysitter cancels, they leave their six months old daughter sleeping in her crib at home, checking every thirty minutes if she is fine. When they come home at around one-thirty, the front door is open and the crib empty! Theme and Genre: This psychological thriller is about parenting, postnatal depression and kidnapping. Which makes this story special is the fact, that it does not only focus on the criminal acts and research, but on the different characters of the persons involved. It shows how one single decision can change a life forever in a way that could not have been foreseen. Plot and writing: The gripping story is much more than a typical whodunit. The plot develops and shows the reader the idea and motivation of one of the persons involved, but then continues with disturbing and surprising twists, which does not allow the reader to put the book down again before the last page. Conclusion: A gripping, disturbingly realistic plot, which captivates the reader with its unforeseeable twists.

But then, all is a mess. Anne and Marco are at a party at their neighbours’. Their baby daughter is at home, alone since the babysitter cancelled at short notice. But what can happen with the parents just next door and checking on the girl every 30 minutes? However, when they finally come home at half past one in the morning, the front door is ajar and the girl is gone. For the police, the parents immediately are among the suspects – and neither Anne nor Marco know whom to trust anymore. It soon becomes obvious that both of them have kept some secrets, but they are not the only ones with something to hide. Shari Lapena has constructed a thriller which really is worth calling it one. Dropping hints here and there you quickly realize that you cannot be sure about any of the characters and that there is much more at stake than just an abducted girl. New information every so often makes you reconstruct your idea of what really happened in that night. You have just finished adjusting your thesis and it is gone. Towards the end, an even larger conspiracy comes out which is a real surprise but makes perfectly sense. What I appreciated about the novel was not only that it could surprise me more than once, but especially the way the characters were drawn. None of the one-dimensional they all had different shades of good and bad, of reckless and compassionate which made them appear quite lively. The plot is very well constructed, it is full of suspense and keeps you reading on the find out what is all behind. To me, it was entertainment at its best.
